Yeah if I didn't get COH along with Mass effect I would be whining on the forums much more right now....

So I'm STILL ON THE NORMANDY the first "prologue" where you have to go talk to nihlus. I start the conversation with him but shortly after it freezes. Like freezes in the middle of the chatting session subtitles stuck there no moving animations at all.

I hate it when the game freezes. It happens all the time, most likely due to the anti-hack software it has on the disc. Even mounting the ISO on a 'fake' drive doesn't solve the problem (if reading the disc was causing my errors). Gotta love not being able to play a game I paid for.

Have you disabled background processes? Firewalls, antivirus programs etc? I know ME has a lot of problems with AVG.

Also, Bobo, you shouldn't need the disc in the drive to play.

I exited spybot and AVG (should disable it), msn messenger and daemon tools. Tried Mass effect again, made a new game too and went to the nihlus scene.

Only to be greeted by another freeze, yeah it ain't working....

wraithcat;4759027Mass Effect Community - Freeze during chat with Nihlus

google-fu

hopefully helps.

Well, I updated my drivers and tweaked the sound settings but now I'm freezing every time nihlus first speaks. Which is where he responds to joker saying "1500 is good" the scene freezes the sound goes on, then the sentence ends and the entire game halts.

I'm currently going to wait for Auto-update to SP3 (if it ever does that at all or I'm getting are tiny little updates) where the solution said was a C++ runtime problem? which is fixed with SP3 somehow.

I give up, after updating to SP3 which like wraithcat's help said which should update my runtime C++ thing, it still didn't work. Still stuck at Nihlus's first speech with joker.

I'm just gonna delete it and wait til I get a newer better rig and try it again.

hmm you have a problem with the game and no one mentions system specs? tut tut tut So Stalwart, what are your specs? Mass Effect chopped my PC to bits so I bought it for the Xbox instead and I have a decent enough gaming PC.

Its widely known that M.E has major issues with Nvidia based drivers.
